Dilly, Texas - Buster’s Gate Apr 28

Monday, April 28, 2014
Dilly, Texas - Buster’s Gate 74 degrees and mostly sunny to 98 degrees and mostly sunny.

This morning the rig night crew is leaving for a week and will return as the next day crew in a week. The remainder of the night crew came in this afternoon for their week on site.

It turned into an interesting day as Bonnie went to Pearsall for our weekly shopping the usual water grocery, Walmart, Dollar store gasoline, propane bottle refill and pickup mail forwarded from New Mexico. Bonnie stopped at the dollar store first and when she returned to Tan Jan it would not start low battery, there was someone there to help jump starting it and I told her to keep it running take the key fob with her and lock the car before closing the door. She got one half mile from Buster and it would not run any more after the jump start and Bonnie walked the remainder home to Buster.

                                 Happy Birthday Bonnie

I went inside and Charlie came out with me and the car would run as long as the cables were connected and stopped when I removed one. The battery cutoff switch we use when towing failed “melted”, plastic case, so that there was no continuity across the switch with the switch turned on. I removed the switch from the circuit and the car started with out a jump. Now we need a better battery cutoff switch or remove the replacement switch when we are in a traveling - towing the car mode. The stud on the right in the picture should be molded into the switch.
